Farewell to Summer

The evenings are drawing in and the mornings are damp and chillier which is a sure sign that summer is fading and autumn is upon us.

My tag today is called Farewell to Summer and whilst we are thinking of the changing colours from fresh greens to dusky oranges and browns I don't want to loose the lovely warmth of the sun.

I started with some of Wendy's re-inkers to make the background and added some stencilling and stamping

The cone flower is one of Wendy Vecchi's art parts painted with distress paints, some gold embossing paste rubbed on randomly and then distress inks to build up the layers.

The arts part border at the bottom was painted with mustard seed distress paint, dried and sunset orange, butterscotch and sandal alcohol ink dripped on and left to dry.

I finished off with some remnant rubs and a stamped and punched number that fitted over the tag hole perfectly.

Although we will miss the summer colours and long summer days I love to see the autumn hues appearing and already I have some of the gold and red leaves appearing on my flowering cherry tree. They are beautiful.

Have a fun filled week.
